The rich, elegant Tenuta Frescobaldi di Castiglioni, this estate’s iconic wine, is clearly in a modern key, but holds fast to the qualities of its local terroir. Tenuta di Castiglioni’s deep, opaque ruby-red, rimmed in purple, intrigues the eye. The nose is marked by appealing, fragrant fruit, with deep draughts of dark-fleshed fruit, such as wild blackberry, black cherry, plum, and strawberry, which shade into toastier notes of cocoa powder, roast espresso bean, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. Impressively full-bodied, the palate shows pleasurably warm, smooth, and well-rounded. Its tangy acidity and noble tannins, already well integrated into the structure, contribute to its exemplary balance. Subtle fruit enlivens a lengthy, long-lingering finish.
